George Lucas is one of the largest private land owners in Marin, so much so, you'd think they named Lucas Valley Road after him, not so. Garcia's residence in Nicasio was located off the west end of Lucas Valley Road, Skywalker Ranch is nearby, more towards the east, just a tad bit off the Hwy 101.

Star Wars has been "berry berry good to me"! Lucas has an estimated net worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 Billion which is useful for two reasons. Firstly, an ability to pay the property tax on his land holdings and most importantly having a pact with both Bill Gates and Warren Buffet to donate a sizeable chunk of their collective net worth to charity upon passing from this life.

Pretty cool eh, i mean to make such a sizeable contribution in one's lifetime;

yes?

Ah, but can it make up for Jar Jar? Or making Greedo shoot first? Or casting Hayden Christensen as The Cutie Pie Who Became Darth Vader and Also By The Way Made C3PO When He Was a Little Boy? (Kidding kidding. Sort of.)

It occurs to me that there are also strong reasons, in both cases, to champion the 70s over the 90s and to lament the impact of high tech. Those bar-band aliens who debuted on 5/25/77 are way more cool than the CGI aliens later on, who'd probably use a MIDI.

That cover is looking more appropriate all the time :-)

AR, you're not alone in giving the cover a chance. Here's what SherBear (jboy's sister) had to say about the Star Wars cover:


"your sparking my imagination"
with that cool cover, just a guess, xo!
Stop over to the purply planet
the dust storms
taste like cotton candy and the rain
feels like silk falling all over you....
And wind cries ~ Sherry.
And there
s
dock on the other side for
the Ship of Fools that need a
ride to a new CD cover>>>>
maybe make one with just one word on it
IMAGINATION
and I'll turn it into a love song, xo
Can'
t
please everybody but
you can please yourself.
xo for the creator X"
